[REL] Better Flares 3.3a for ETS2 (UPD 9/8)

#1 Post by paokkerkir » 28 Apr 2020 11:14

Better Flares 3.3 is an adapted version of Better Flares 3.2, with converted textures to latest. Compatible with ETS2 1.36/1.37. You want Better Flares for ATS? Here.

All credits to Avelium for the mod, and to SCS forum members for reporting crashes. Original topic here.
Many thanks to Truckendoos, Zippy, mgysgtdev and The Old Fart.
Special thanks to Rockeropasiempre for the LED traffic light addon.


Jazzycat addons are old, but work ok even with the latest Jazzycat packs. Of course not all of the new models have the new flares, but there are enough to create diversity and immersion.

Jazzycat addons are of course not required and should not be loaded when you don't have Jazzys packs.

Better Flares 3.3a updated 9/5
LED Traffic Lights Add-on New 4/5
Jazzycat add-ons updated 9/8

The downloads and the mods will always be free.

Some entries are old and obsolete, I don't know how to fix this really, the mod is old and designed for an older Jazzycat pack. If you mind the errors in the log you can opt not to use jazzy's add-ons. My goal was to convert the models to the latest pmd/pmg and to remove entries that crash the game. These entries are annoying but they are not slowing the game down like ..converting was.

Also make sure you have the suggested load order.

I tested it for several hours playing, nice looking, but I got sudden CTD`s after 20-30 minutes playing :o :o :o :o
After removing the mod I got back my stable ETS2. :D

I think you have to work further on this mod.

@Truckendoos

With a quick look, Renault megane 2 caused error in convering the texture so I cannot include it.

Mancist caused crashes in my test. Are you using latest Jazzys packs? I will look into your recommendations.

Duble post, thanks for the recommendations Truckendoos! It seems that the log is not a sea of red now. Updated Jazzys add ons link.
